It's Been a While

Sorry it has been a little while since I have updated anything on the house or the family. First off, I want to tell the whole world how proud I am of Colton. We had our second parent teacher conference last night and I quote the first words out of his teacher's mouth, "I just love having your son in my class. He is such a wonderful boy, and he is always happy and nice and kind." As I said on our other blog, nothing makes me more happy and more proud than to hear how happy our boy and how kind our boy is. That is one the greatest things a parent could ever hear. For the garbage Colton has had to go through and hear, I am so glad and thank God for such a wonderful and smart boy. They told us that he is making really goo strides and learning well. Of course he has his 6 year old moments when he can't focus, but he is getting better. I am so proud of him. He is also doing well in karate and hopefully soon, we can get him into some piano lessons. I also registered him for baseball (machine pitch) the other day. I am again going to coach his team and plan on having another undefeated season!

The house is "almost" done. We finally have CARPET!!!! I grew up on carpet and have missed it since we moved into our house, but it is back and it is Awesome. It has really made our basement. We don't have worry anymore about what that old carpet had in it. It also creates more space for Colton and I to wrestle. We love it. There is a lot of clean up still to be done but here is what part of looks like:

I should be receiving the door knobs today! We are really down to the finishing touches. It feels good to almost be done with our major projects. Maybe next week we will sell it start over? Ha - don't count on it. I am working on putting up a lot more pictures in an online gallery, so once I do, I will let you all know. Pictures of Abigail's room are posted on
